The Plan for a Cooperative 16mm Film Library 

A year ago a plan was suggested for building a central library of 16mm 
classroom films for the use of cooperating Illinois schools. According to the 
plan a school purchases and deposits a 16mm classroom film in the Visual 
Aids Library and pays a service fee of $5 per year. This entitles the school 
to unlimited use of the 16mm films and glass slides during the year In- 
asmuch as the average life of a film which is booked once a week is approxi- 
mately two years, schools are asked to deposit a classroom film every two 
years. Excellent classroom films may be purchased for as little as $24 per 
reel, and therefore the total yearly cost to a school is approximately $17 a 
year With the issuance of this catalogue, the beginning of the second year 
of the plan, there are available to member schools more than 150 reels of 
16mm film. Among these are more than thirty reels which cannot be rented 
trom a bureau of visual instruction for less than one dollar per dav 

It is expected that additional classroom films will be deposited during the 
year. Member schools will be advised concerning new films from time to 
time. School administrators or teachers wishing to deposit a film for their 
school should write the Visual Aids Service for instructions on selecting a 
him so as not to duplicate those in the library. 

The 16mm film is rapidly replacing the 35mm film for school use for the 
following reasons: (1) The equipment and film are easier to handle Any 
teacher can learn to operate a 16mm projector in ten minutes. (2) All 
16mm films are on safety stock, thus avoiding all danger of fire. No booth 
is required for projecting 16mm films. (3) The purchase and rental prices 
Di 16mm films are much less than for 35mm films. (4) A 16mm film costs 
nuch less for transportation than a 35mm film. (5) The picture obtained 
trom a 16mm film is regarded adequate for all practical purposes, including 
>mall auditorium use. 


1. Schools depositing a classroom film and paying a service fee of $5 
ire entitled to unlimited use of 16mm films and glass slides (See above ) 

2. An annual service fee of $7.50 entitles a school to unlimited use of the 
6mm films not marked by an asterisk and of the glass slides. A fee of 
>4.M) entitles a school to such service for one semester 

3 An annual service tee of $7.50 entitles a school to unlimited use of 
11 35mm films and ot the glass slides. A fee of $4.50 entitles a school to 
uch service for one semester. 

4. An annual service fee of $4 entitles a school to unlimited use of the 
* as c s s ,( . k> f- A f ee of $2.50 entitles a school to such service for one semester 

5. M the use of both sizes of 1.1m is desired. $2.50 should he added to 
he yearly service fee or $1.50 to the semester fee, as the case may be 

6. Single him titles or slide sets may be rented for a fee of fifty cents 
acn. I he fee must accompany the order. 

University of Illinois 

Rules Governing the Visual Aids Service 

1. Transportation charges both ways will be paid by the user. In the 
case of 16mm films especially transportation is much cheaper by parcel post 
than express. Materials may be sent from this Service by parcel post if the 
borrower has a postage deposit ; otherwise all materials will be sent express 
collect. If it is desired that materials be sent by parcel post, a deposit vary- 
ing from $2 to $5 should be made depending upon the amount of material 
used. All parcel post shipments should be insured. 

2. Films are booked for one day's use. Slides are booked for three day's 
use. Return shipments must be sent not later than the morning following 
the date of booking or the next borrower may be seriously inconvenienced. 

3. The Service reserves the right to wire a user collect who holds a film 
more than one day or slides more than three days without permission. 

4. The user is liable for any undue damage to materials. The cost of 
replacing damaged films averages about six cents a foot, and broken slides 
about fifty cents each. 

5. Monthly reports concerning the circulation of materials are required 
of this Service. Therefore the user is required to fill out and return each 
time the Borrower's Report Card supplied. This card may be returned in 
express packages if desired. 

6. Borrowers are not permitted to loan materials to other individuals or 
institutions nor to use them for personal financial gain. 

7. Do not rewind films. Do not try to mend or pin films ; use wire clips 

8. Address all packages and correspondence to Visual Aids Service, 113 
Education Building, University of Illinois, Urbana, Illinois. 

Suggestions Relative to Ordering 

1. Suggest more than one date for the booking of films or slides. This 
may save considerable correspondence. 

2. If possible make a first and second choice of subjects. 

3. State accurately the title of the film or set of slides. 

4. Be sure to state size of film wanted. The 16mm films are the narrow 
films and the 35mm films are the regular or wide size. 

Suggestions on the Operation of Projectors 

1. Confine the oil to the places to be lubricated. A large proportion of 
the troubles of the average projector is due to careless use of lubricants. 
Keep rollers that guide the film lubricated with light oil, but do not get the 
oil on the outside of the rollers. 

2. The film gate must be kept clean. Clean the tracks often; for if a 
particle of emulsion sticks to the tracks, it will gradually pick up more emul- 
sion and make scratches on the film. 

3. Do not use sandpaper or any metal object to remove emulsion. They 
will only roughen up the runners so as to make them worse at tearing off 
emulsion. Use the finger nail to remove emulsion from machine parts. 

4. If the sprockets are worn sharp, replace them immediately. They are 

Visual Aids Service 

dangerous to films and cause an unsteady picture. It is much cheaper to 
replace worn sprockets than to buy new films. 

5. Do not use a projector until it is in good condition. It does not pay. 

Additional Films on the Subject of Health 

Illinois schools may obtain additional films on health, hygiene, nutrition, 
sanitation, and disease from the State Department of Public Health. A 
16mm projector may also be borrowed for showing the films. Teachers in- 
terested should write to Mr. B. K. Richardson, Chief, Division of Public 
Instruction, Department of Public Health, Springfield, Illinois. 

• Visual Instruction Equipment 

The Visual Aids Service will gladly give information in regard to visual 
instruction equipment to those who desire it. 

The cost of providing adequate motion picture equipment, films, and 
slides for a school is a relatively small item, and a legitimate one. It should 
be provided for in the regular budget. Teaching with the aid of motion 
pictures and slides is both an economical and efficient form of instruction. 

Note: Address all packages and correspondence to Visual 
Aids Service, 113 Education Building, University of Illi- 
nois, Urbana, Illinois.
